Nice install Spidar. But I would not trust the capacitor where you mounted it.

I have my concerns about it as well, but I couldn't find anywhere else to put it. I've ran about 3 race days so far with the capacitor there, and so far so good.

I didn't quite get the blue as close as I would like, but its good enough.
The car IS balanced left to right with the PPD plates. Currently I'm about 10grams under depending on body/paint used.
BTW there is a personal transponder in there....but its hidden in the bumper.


do you have a tutorial on painting your shock towers blue?

It's easy enough. Go to CRCs (the pan car mfg) and look for the tut to give a smooth piano black finish to the edge of your CF. I follow those except instead of using black marker, I used silver. I then sand again as to see where the silver dissapears to get the high spots again, then apply silver again. Before CAing the edge, I used Createx candly blue (I think it was....but use whatever color you desire) and I applied with a q-tip. I do several coats, then use a razor and run it along the top and bottom of CF to remove excess on chassis. Then CA the edges as in the CRC tut and wetsand as many times as needed to get it smooth. Due to the paint not bonding as well as CA to the CF, this is not as durable as a piano black finish.
